Just moved to Houston and looking for musicians to form a blues band.
About me: late 30’s, guitarist and vocalist, have toured, opened for and played with many international touring artists. I am very committed to my band and looking to form a group to play 3-4 times a month. Style is BB King mixed with West Coast Jump Blues. Want to have fun but more importantly sound good, tight and get it right. I take this seriously and any interested parties should as well. I have begun promoting for gigs and have some dates lined up.
Looking for horns (tenor,
Alto or bari Sax, trumpet, bone,) Upright and/or electric bass, drums (swing is very important)and keys (piano or organ or ideally both). Have 100+ original and cover arrangements for horns. Must be able to learn material as written, rehearse at least 2x monthly and really immerse into the music.
This will be a great band once I get my pieces in place and something very different that what most “blues” bands are doing. This will not be a blues rock or SRV style band. Please send me a reply if you fit the criteria and want more info. Thank you.
